[Intro] 
E A (2x)


[Verse 1]
        E                       A
It was when I rode off in my daydream
   E                     A
Chasing that vision of light
        E                        A
It was then I got caught in the jet stream
         E                            A
And I dropped through a hole in the night
        D                       F#m
Then I knew it's not you that I run from
       A           B     C#m
I saw each of us living alone
        D                                F#m
And I prayed that you'd still could be waiting
      A              B        C#m       B
And that's when I started for home


[Chorus]
E      E7    A     F#m7
Oh my Jenny, oh my Jenny
C#m7            B       B A F#m
Oh my Jenny my love
E      E7    A     F#m7
Oh my Jenny, oh my Jenny
 B                   A      E B
You are my rainbow above


[Verse 2]
        E                      A
I have seen a great city in darkness
       E                      A
Dream lady dressed in cold concrete
     E                      A
And I've seen the city of angels
           E                         A
With the names of its dead in the streets
         D                      F#m
And for once I could see it all your way
         A          B          C#m
And for once I knew I was all wrong
         D                        F#m
And I thought of you there in my doorway
       A                B          C#m    B
And I knew I'd been travellin' too long

[Chorus]
E      E7    A     F#m7
Oh my Jenny, oh my Jenny
C#m7            B       B A F#m
Oh my Jenny my love
E      E7    A     F#m7
Oh my Jenny, oh my Jenny
 B                   A      E B
You are my rainbow above

[Verse 3]
          E                           A
When I crossed to the heart of the country
       E                    A
I was lost in a forest of signs
         E                          A
And I laughed 'cause life gets so funny
             E                     A
Here I was wasted from wastin' my time
         D                       F#m
So now shine down you sun on my shadow
   A            B           C#m
Without you I don't mean a thing
      D                    F#m
And gather me one golden morning babe
             A             B         C#m    B
'Cause it's your song that I need to sing

[Chorus]
E      E7    A     F#m7
Oh my Jenny, oh my Jenny
C#m7            B       B A F#m
Oh my Jenny my love
E      E7    A     F#m7
Oh my Jenny, oh my Jenny
 B                   A      E B
You are my rainbow above

[repeat chorus and end...]
